  1. Estimation of the clinically diagnosed proportion of sleep apnea syndrome in middle-aged men and women.

    Article - En anglais

    The proportion of sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) in the general adult population that goes undiagnosed was estimated from a sample of 4,925 employed adults.

    Questionnaire data on doctor-diagnosed sleep apnea were followed up to ascertain the prevalence of diagnosed sleep apnea.

    In-laboratory polysomnography on a subset of 1,090 participants was used to estimate screen-detected sleep apnea.

    In this population, without obvious barriers to health care for sleep disorders, we estimate that 93% of women and 82% of men with moderate to severe SAS have not been clinically diagnosed.

    These findings provide a baseline for assessing health care resource needs for sleep apnea.
